Profile

A hunger for runs that is never sated

Having failed to reach 20 in his two Test innings as a stand-in for the injured Matthew Hayden in 2008, Chris Rogers’ Test career appeared destined to have stalled at the first corner. But opening batsmen are made of plucky stuff, and the studious left-hander devoted himself to the only course of action that could feasibly resurrect his ambition.

He made runs. Piles of them. Often in large doses. For Western Australia and then Victoria. And in the English county championship. Then, at age 35 and with almost 20,000 first-class runs to his name, he was summoned to galvanise Australia’s top order in the 2013 Commonwealth Bank Ashes series .

A consummate professional who knows his game and the limitations it imposes on him, Rogers displayed his acumen and his temperate in scoring a maiden Test century in difficult conditions at Chester le-Street and, in doing so, became the second-oldest Australian to achieve that feat.

It has only succeeded in convincing there are more milestones to come.
